Rethink learning

We are on a mission to help everyone rethink learning. We want to encourage and make it possible for everyone to have access to learning.

We are constantly finding ways to make learning more effective, more enjoyable, more convenient, more accessible. It means we never stop looking for ways to improve.

About us

Meet Tom and Max, the curious learners who got Obby off the ground. When an attempt to find the right butchery class for Tom’s Dad back in 2015 was unsuccessful, the idea for Obby was born.

Since then, the Obby Team has strived to bring students and teachers together in a shared learning goal. Starting in London, and spreading out Nationwide.

We are a curious, engaging and confident bunch, who stop at nothing to make learning accessible to all.
